How to Access Pure Joy


When the Divine creates, it creates out of joy, not under pressure.  The Divine is infinitely wise, infinitely joyous.  It is complete in itself, so whatever it creates has to be out of pure joy.  We call that ananda; the primary or empirical joy of existence.

It is in understanding and in beginning to realize more and more, we too will access that joy from where the play is happening, because it is happening in that fundamental field of existence.

It is not happening in the identification or the limitation in the consciousness; it is happening in the deeper aspect of consciousness.  So to access the joy that is the undercurrent, we need to go a little deeper, hence the journey into Self.  We need to go within,  detaching the Consciousness from its outward nature, and bringing the attention more to the inner consciousness.  And here is where we will experience Self differently: self that is finite, physical body; self that is emotional; self that is mental; and self that is detached and transcendent.  So self is continuously being experienced differently as the consciousness shifts, as we move more and more inwards, and hence if we go deep enough, we can have an experience of infinite Self. Sri Vasudeva


Follow your Passion to Unlimited Being

The whole goal of yoga is for subject, object and process to become one. You have to become completely united with what you are doing. On the physical side, it is to align the body so completely that spirit is manifesting fully in and through the body. On the emotional side, it is to become one with the Beloved, to be in a relationship with the Beloved where you become the perfect instrument; there is only the Beloved in and through you. Everywhere that you look there is the Beloved within you and around you. When you choose the mental path, it is to break free from the illusion and to see that there is only One in the whole play; the One Self. Wherever you are, you bring that consciousness of unlimited being. Wherever you are drawn to, begin to open up your consciousness to that area. Sri Vasudeva
